Cake on the Barbie


We had Gabby’s birthday party a couple Saturday’s ago. The wife made the cake herself. She started brewing just after 9 that morning and had it iced and ready well before the 2 p.m. party time. And yes, that’s an actual Barbie popping out the top.

About a dozen kids came for the party. After two hours of running, playing, trampolining and eating, the final three au revoirs came with extra helpings of tears. They did not want to go! Quoting one girls, begging her mom, “Promise I can come back. Please let me come back!”

So I guess I know what she wished for. That everyone would beg to stay and play!
